Although it might not be something you're willing to admit, summer is in the midst of its final, dying days. But there's still a fleeting chance to score a getaway before the leaves turn orange, thanks to Southwest Airlines latest flash sale, which is hawking tickets starting at $40.
As you can see on the airline's official sale site, there's a long list of discounted fares to 50 cities throughout the United States, Mexico, and even Cuba, but the overall cheapest tickets are found in California. You can score $40 flights between Long Beach to Oakland, if you're looking for a quick jaunt throughout the Golden State. Flights between Chicago and Atlanta run a modest $42, but if you're willing to stretch your wallet an extra seven dollars -- yes, seven whole dollars -- you can also fly from Atlanta to New Orleans for $49. That'll free up some extra cash in your budget for a bit of an adventure in the Big Easy.
